Very clear sound, Some crowd noise
Excellent sound. And Andrew put on a great show that night. The only downside is an audience member who would not shut up during "Action Adventure". He quieted down after that song but there does seem to be an unusual amount of constant "discussion" in the audience. It's almost like Andrew is playing at a coffe shop instead of a theater. But the sound of Andrew and his instruments is very good indeed.
For those of you not familier with Andrew's work, he's a one man show with a huge sound. He will play a riff and digitally record it live. Then it loops back and he plays over it. As he builds layers of loops he can bring them in and out of the song at different points. The combination of his voice, guitar, violin (bowed, plucked and processed), glockenspiel, and whistle create a truely unique soundscape. It's well worth the listen.
